Federal Jii.lue Denied Them IUrM to Homuta I1t-. .New York. Nov. 5. Judge I.acoinbe In the United States circuit court has hand-d down an opinion on the appli cation iu behalf of John Turner, the anarchist, who hoped through a writ of habeas corpus to escape the deportation ordered by the Washington officials. Judge Lacombe dismissed the writ, re fusing Turner the right to remain in this country. II. O. Pentecost, representing Turner, on the argument of the writ contended that the law which classified anarchists among the excluded persons was uncon stitutional. Anarchy, Mr. Pentecost held, was a religion, but this conten tion is disposed of by Judge Lacombe, who says, "It is difficult to understand upon what theory the exclusion of an alien who is an anarchist can be held to be a prohibition of the free exercise of religion." Understanding that an appeal was to be made to the supreme court in Wash ington by Turner's counsel in case of an adverse decision, Judge Lacombe provides that in the event of such an appeal the custody of the accused man shall not be disturbed pending the ap peal. Turner is now confined at Ellis island, and there he will remain pend ing the official and final decision by the court of last resort. CANH01T rOH SPEAKER.

Some people do not need to gain flesh, but many must before health can be re stored to a normal condition. Are you thin? Do you require more fltf-h to be really well and strong'.' If you do, we want you to commence a course of treatment now with Vinol, and we will ajjree that if after you hava tnke what we consider should be enough to restore your normal weight, and it has not succeeded, we will pay tor all the medicine you have taken ourselvus. Now you will aaree that we would nun ourselvus financially if we should make such a bold otter on an article o no merit, and we must know what we are talking about, or we would not guarantee the action af any medicine like that. A prominent physician recently satu, "The best way to gain good, solid, tirm flesh is to take Vinol, for in it you get all the curative, flesh-making and strength- creating properties contained In that grand old remedy, cod liver oil, without the nauseating oil itself, and the weakest stomack can retain it. Thin people are usually weak and ailing, and inol is what they need." Dr '.. V. llighsmith of Sumter, S. C, writes: "While taking Vinol I gained ten pounds; it restored appetite and strength." Mr. K. O. Taf t of Hoonton, N. J., writes : "Vinol increased my weight eight pounds in a short time, and made me wen."; Mr. Henry Dickens of 'Nashvill, Tenu., writes: "Vinol increased my weight 17 nounds and cured me. 1 emild not take ood liver oil. as It disagreed with me and upset my stomach." C. G. Johnson of Burlington, Vt., writes "Vinol has restored my lost weight, and I have cained 20 pounds. Uld fashioned cod liver oil upset my stomach, but Vinol made me well." So we might go on quoting from hun dreds of such letters, and it is for this reason we know what Vinol will do. You see it acts first upon the stomach, creates an appetite for good, wholesome food, and strengthens and tones up tne digestive or gans so the food is properly assimilated. Rich, red blood is sent coursing through every vein; solid, firm flesh is created wherever it is needed, and emaciated fig ures, hollow cheeks, and sunken eyes are soon a thing of the past. V inol makes firm, healthy flesh, and the weak strong, beoause it strengthens every organ in the body to do its work. Trv It on our guarantee. Rickert & Wells, Druggists. Three Yearn' Strike Falls.

Failures of All (lnsaee snow In- crease Over Last Year Hall war Karniiies Good. The Crops. New York, Nov. 7.-R. G. Dun & Co.'s weekly review of trade says. Unseasonably mild weather is mak ing it possible for farmers to secure much late grain and cotton that seem ed doomed by early frost; but, on the other hand, trade Is dull in heavy wearing apparel, fuel and many lines that should now be vigorous, wnu In the long run this business may made up, and the nation will be bene fited by the Increased crops, the imme diate effect is unfavorable. Manufac turing activity has increased at cotton mills and several minor industries, but in iron and steel there are more idle furnaces and mills. Building permits are decreasing, and structural work is not prosecuted with the vigor that was seen last year. Lumber is firm despite the moderate demand. Several labor controversies that were threatened have failed to materialize. and the country is remarkably free from Interruption on this account. Ex ports of merchandise from this city for the last week were $."01,7-1(1 larger than in the same week last year, and the liberal supply of grain and cotton bills brought-foreign exchange down to a noint where a small amount of gold was engaged. - The railways con tinue prosperous, earnings for OctolxT surpassing last year's by C.U per cent. Bank exchanges at New York for the week were 20.4 per cent smaller than a year ago, but at other leading cities there was a gain of 3.1 per cent. Export of Wheat. All ports of the United States sent out '2,882,508 bushels of wheat durin the past week, flour included, w rhlcl. compares with 4.210,230 bushels a y ago and .r).orl,iT2 in the same week o 1901. Western receipts of wheat wer. 5,G8(i,Gr9 bushels against 7.8(17.970 la year, while of corn 2.870.191) bushel compare with 2,127,074 a year, a more was tne customary free move merit of corn from Atlantic coast eitic 1,2.'!9,723 bushels, comparing with only 137,4.10 bushels last year. Anothti sharp recovery in cotton was due to Mr. Ellison's estimate of the world' requirements of the American staple His figures were almost Identical with last year's, or about a million bale more than minimum estimates ot th total crop. Both these guesses will have to be modified in view ot hig prices ana ravorauie weatner for se curing late maturing cotton. October Insolvencies. Insolvencies were unusually nmne ous in October, with an abnormal heavy indebtedness, both as to niercan tile and -fiduciary concerns. In strictly commercial lines there were 1,0VG sus pensions, with liabilities of ?1.S,3S7..H1 compared with 903 failures for $10, K,")l,r..'!t in the same mouth last yea Banking suspensions numbered 21, wit' liabilities of .$1.1,0Hi.C3.""., against only a year ago for $3,432,370. Manufa. turing bankruptcies were 810 iu na ber and ?1 1,905,309 in amount nyahis 2.17 last year Involving $.1,370,187. Trading failures numbered 720 and in volvwl liabilities of $."i.r.'5('i,129 com pared with 0.12 for $4,049,532 in Octo ber, .1902. There were .10 other com mercial failures for fS50,or,9 against 54 for $831,795 a year ago. While the ex hibit is extremely unsatisfactory, it Is not necessarily an Indication of a se vere setback in the Industrial world, because many of the failures can be traced to special influences, such as speculation and strikes, which are no longer menacing business, and with the stimulus of a profitable agricultural season there is reason to look for bettet collections and revival of activity. Mestoo Welcomes Chinese.

Bristol, Tenn., Nov. 9,-Tho Went- family now denies most enipnaiicaiiy , the lvport that Edward L. Wentz, the missing young millionaire, ims been found and that he is being be!d for a ransom. 1 ney say iitai uirjr nave unso lutely no tidings from the missing man d that the mystery Is today as deep as at any time. The fact that the proposition to deliv er young eniz ir ji'-wj i .une jrom what is now regarded as a wholly un reliable source leaves the family again at sea regarding a solution of the mys tery. It has been learned tnat tne man who made the proposition was a Kentueklan named Smith, who displayed a cheap detective badge under the lapel of his coat. The agents of the Wentz family after several conferences with him shadowed him on his journeys through the mountains and finally tonviueed themselves that he was a fraud. This has been a most diillciilt case to understand. There are hundreds of ru mors, but every seeming clew has turned out to be a myth, there are those who have bclieveu. owing to tne maneuvers of the detectives, that Went?, has been found and that the matter is being kept a secret, but the positive denial of the family on that point sets at naught all surmise and points back to the once abandoned the ory of murder, followed by concealment of the body. The body, it is feared, may have been consumed in a coke oven or furnace of some moonshine distillery . Tried to rimtroy the Soo. Buffalo, Nov. 9. A (sts-clal to the Ex press from Sault Sic. Marie. Out., says that ihe man on guard nt the head gates of the water power canal at the American Soo saw a couple of men act ing suspiciously near the gates, lie fired at them when they refused to halt. They ccaped. The police found six sticks of dynamite near the gates. The destruction of the head gates would be a terrible catastrophe, as the canal is built through the town, and the rush of water that would follow the blasting of the gates would do tremendous dam age. It is supposed that men who were discharged at the closing of the Soo works in September and who have not yet received their back pay have in tended the outrage for revenge. Oldest Seed Firm Fails.
